Creative Moments challenge

This lovely image is from:

It comes with backing papers but I chose to use some autumnal bits from my stsh to back the image. The image was coloured with Promarkers and then Spectrum Noir pencils to enhance in places – especially the black dog, which is a job to colour! I might add a sentiment when I have decided who will receive this card.

Happy 18th Birthday!

Our second son was 18 yesterday. I made this card using a Mo Manning digi image and papers from the Very Fine Chap line from DoCrafts( I have had them for years!) I printed a greeting but the happy 18th came from a pack of cake toppers.

Vanilla cupcakes
White Chocolate and orange cake

Anyway we all had a great time. Especially him!

Happy Birthday Mum

Today is my Mother-in-law’s birthday so I made this card using a Hunkydory free gift! I know free – look how lovely it is! I added the gems from my stash and the sentiment is upcycled from a card I received on my birthday – such a great match.

We are self isolating so can’t see her today but wishing her a very happy birthday.

Personal card

This card is for a very dear friend. She her husband and her son love to walk their cocker spaniel across the fields in all weather. I used stamp set from Hunkydory called A Boot-iful Day . The tennis ball came from a freeset that came with a magazine and represents not only the dog, but the fact they met at a Tennis camp. I stamped onto water colour card and used water colours to complete.

She loved this card and has put it in a frame.

Rejoice in the Risen Lord

I used Hunkydory Easter Wishes kit to make this beautiful Easter card. I made up the 3D-decoupage topper, using the die-cut elements, and added a sentiment before mounting onto a 5×7 card blank. I then used a craft knife to cut adound the topper, through both layers, to make a standing cross. Thank you Hunkydory for producing such a beautiful kit.
